The Vogtland Reeves’ Cultural Trail invites you to discover the historic Vogtland. The main route with the most beautiful objects, 14 stages and selected hiking and biking tours open up a total of almost 150 sights in the region between Thuringia, Saxony, Bavaria and Bohemia. Churches, castles and palaces, city walls, or market places herald a medieval glory period, when the reeves of Weida, Plauen and Gera were in charge here. They founded the Vogtland around 900 years ago as servants of the German emperor.
The cultural trail pays tribute to these former sovereigns and their cultural heritage as a new tourist offer. The Vogtland is a cultural landscape that is worthy to discover. Along the river Weiße Elster as well as on the rivers Saale, Göltzsch and Eger are outstanding architectural testimonies of the Middle Ages such as the Osterburg castle in Weida or the former imperial palace in Eger, but also romantic castle ruins and small chapels away from the cities.
